Soleil is a big comic book publisher in France, owned by Delcourt an even bigger comic boom publisher in France since 2011.
Delcourt is going to close the Soleil offices in Toulon. Some of workers will have to move to Paris, but others will be let go. Soleil has been in Youlon since it was founded by Mourad Boudjellal in 1989.
It had already been noted that Soleil production was being decreased after the purchase, with 367 books in 2012, 342 in 2013 and just 269 in 2014…all down to the economy, apparently.
